I received the following feedback from a user. Not sure if Daniel is on
this list to answer followup questions, but I'll encourage him to join.

BTW I installed RDO from scratch on a CentOS 6.5 box 2 weeks ago,
1/ the instruction worked, no tweaking, packstack did work
even with the horrible connection I'm having at the moment
2/ the setup instructions are clear and simple
however it should be made clear that the host where the
installation is done should have a fully qualified DNS name
as that's one of the small issue I hit, and people doing testing
are likely to do it on machines without that set up
3/ I got the console working just fine
The Less Good:
Creating a CentOS test instance should be no more than an
additional 2 steps, it wasn't
Step 1 if CONTROL_NODE is not the IP (previous document referenced
an iP) then one need to pass a FQDN, in my case
http://test/dashboard fails with
"Openstack dashboard Something went wrong an unexpected error
has occured ..."
So either make sure the FQDN is part of the requirement in step 0
or like for the quickstart use $YOURIP that will also be coherent
=> I wonder how many get stuck at that step thinking their
installation is broken
Step 2 and 3 just fine
that's another issue, the default is a Fedora image, and that
worked fine but for CentOS i had to
- click the image resource link
- then follow CentOS 6.5 images
one end up at
a CentOs image, one month old, hosted on Fedora, with no checksum
no README, etc ...
I do think that
need to be updated to point to a real web page, on the CentOS project
with a current image and followup instruction dedicated to people
who were following the RDO instructions
In comparison the http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/ link for
"Ubuntu cloud images" at least has some pointers, we can do way
better and streamline for an RDO setup
Launch the instance instruction failed for me, just providing a
name was not sufficient, the error was
"At least one network must be specified."
it got me to the Networking tab and i had to pick the private
network from the available networks only selection, then launch
it looks like it worked and got a 172.24.4.127 IP, but the instance
still says "IP address 10.0.0.3" , and trying in step 7 to ssh
to 172.24.4.127 failed, both from the remote workstation and
when logged as root
Then messed up creating a local pool of IPs as suggested at
but tuned to the local IP address, registering the network was fine
but it never seems used when trying to associate a floating IP to
=> IMHO we need to fix quite a few things so that instructions work
out of the box up to running and ssh'ing to a CentOS instance.
Rich, are you able to sort and fix those points at least up to
networking setup ?
KB, do we have a page with QCow2 ready CentOS image on the centos site
that we could link to, and provide RDO tuned instructions ?
